Spanning the globe with frequent and once in a while readers. I am interested in collecting, propagating plants, landscape management practices, ecology, environment, flora/fauna, in essence Nature. This blog is written in a blunt, abrasive fashion with consistent critical views on these subjects and others that may be related...or not.

ME GARDEN BOTANICAL INVENTORY

APPARENTLY, this blog is the only one with updates of what we plant and propagate in the blogosphere.
It is necessary and pragmatic. If I had to publish photos of the whole collection it will
a looong blog and not really wise, since words occupy much less space. For those interested in the subject, here it is.

Now, if you live in the concrete/asphalt isle, do not think for a moment of going to a nursery with botanical names since their owners are in for the money, with little or no
interest in our theme. Or get a picture. Even better search for your needs in the internet. The botanical name will suffice. With it you will find or you need to know about diseases, plant zone, sun/shade/soil/irrigation/propagation issues.

To leave in a critical mode.. I met this fellow from the Sierra Club, a "professor" of biology some time ago. I sent this link with some words about the island epidemic
of tree destruction/mutilation and a tour of mutilated trees I planned to do. The little one who changed his name to Spanish to
appear more chummy, responded: " Sure if it is not going to be just complaints".

I should tell you what my original thoughts were about this jester, blind to all the mutilated trees surrounding him at the University of Puerto Rico, where he 'teaches',
however, discrete, humble as I am, I keep it to myself. Until the next...

Hi,Antigonum Cajam!!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I will be the first one to comment on yours.
But I have to be honest with you, I don't have any knowledge about your field of expertise.
However I trying to learned a little bit about Bonsai, actually I have started with a variety of "ficus"(long leaves I think), but it's my very first time. Could you give some light about "Bonsai for newbies" I will appreciate it.
Thanks again for visiting my blog.
I will visiting yours as much as I can.

Darling,

I am not into Bonsai, any mutilation of vegetation.

But I studied the concept, origins and so on.

It is like having a pet. You will have to water twice a day. Since the pot
is not deep..

Or keep the pot in a recipient with water when unable to water,
the roots will take what they need, by capillary action.

Or better yet, search in internet, under bonsai watering/irrigation.

Good luck, thanks for the visit..

A great wide variety of plants!!!

I dream o have my own little garde, but it is imposible, because even my backyard is a concrete backyard, last year I got two little cactus and I have them there, but anything in this world or in universe is beatiest than flora, gardens, woods, all that have leaves, you can have a lot of trees and flowers without any animals, birds or insect within and there will be beauty, but animals, birds and insects on a desolated area are not interesting at all.

I also read your coment in this post and see what you said about bonsai "I am not into Bonsai, any mutilation of vegetation." and i never though about it, but it is truth! it is a way of mutilation.

Thanks again for you coments on my blog, i really enjoy them, "Puerto Rioco, USA" hahahahaa, that made me laugh a lot.

Greetings!!!

I also enjoy your view of our surroundings. We do not have to
agree,since perspective and focus,
depends on light, where are you standing, light, focus and so on...

Exactly as in a film, in terms of photography, what is the intention?

Glad to know that our view of each other blog, goes beyond silly friendship or diplomacy.

Since apparently each one knows
exactly which way we go.

Un abrazo desde la Nueva Quisqueya, una posibilidad que algunos parecera humoristica,pero,
en PUERTO RICO, USA hay un descomunal pocoton de compatriotas suyos...

A mi no me molestaria que Puerto Rico se hiciera provincia de la Espanhola, claro habria que ver
como resolver lo de Haiti.

Saludos:
Me encanta esots encuentros cibernéticos casuales. Increíblemente, mis mayores amores en la vida lo son la escritura y la naturaleza, aunque por desgracia ( mas bien vagancia mia) no le he prestado mucha atencion a la segunda. Hace unos años trabaje en un sitio de comidas organicas. Allí comprendí la relación que tenemos con la tierra, y me encantó. Lo único, que se me hace difícil en Puerto Rico seguir esos pasos, ¿Algún sitio que me recomiendes? maybe NYC?? no sé, he buscado info. pero nada se me hace real.
Gracias por la visita a mi blog, ay que lo tengo medio drama drama drama jejeje pero ya veremos.
ah, si quieres me puedes escribir a chikifofa@gmail.com
gracias!

espero que te haya llegado mi mensaje,
saludos.

Bueno, entonces ahora entiendo lo que quiere decir "nueva quisqueya", en realidad te sientes como se supone que me sentiría yo hacia un haitiano, o lo que representa:"una invasión", pero supongo que tu capacidad intelectual esta más allá de eso, asi que no me sentiré tan aludido.... y para darle un final jocoso al asunto, pues como vemos que los haitianos invaden aqui, nosotros alla en borinquen, pues podemos hacer rotaciones, ustedes se van a USA, nosotros a puertorro, los haitianos para aca y con haiti no he pensado lo que se pueda hacer, unque con lo arruinada que esta esa parte de la isla no creo que haya mucho que pensar.

Saludos vecino!!

JCarlos para nada me siento invadido. De hecho Santurce,
Nueva Quisqueya es como el Alto Manhattan, dominado por sus compatriotas.

Un lugar maravilloso donde me domincanice bastante, con Fefita,
y otros del ripiao, la bachata de entonces, la comida y sobre todo
la belleza, afabilidad de sus simpaticas feminas, para no detallar mucho. Aki dejo claro
que prefiero siempre a la mujer
de cualquier etnia a sus varones.

Lo de Haiti es por lo feos que son,
no por negros, POR FEOS. Han destruido su pais cortando cuanto
arbolito hay para hacer carbon.

Hay que ayudarles de algun modo
para que disfruten el sexo a menudo pero sin prenhar a las mujeres. A eso me refiero.

Lo de sentirse invadido, lo ha escrito usted.

Aparte de que he escrito sobre el tema de EMIGRANTES somos TODOS, al igual que plantas arboles y demas en entradas antiguas.

Asi que todo aclarado...

jCarlos dijo...

Roger that sir!

Un abrazo quisqueyano!

Antigonum Cajan dijo...

JCarlos,

Como Hostos,Betances, Albizu creo
algo sobre la necesidad
de aunar esfuerzo entre las
Antillas.

TODAS! Hasta la proxima!
